Hello I just built my Core I3 based pc.
The system is:
Intel Core I3 530 2.9GHz
Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H
Kingston DDR3 2048MB 1333MHz (x2)
Samsung HD502HJ 500MB
Seasonic S12II Bronze 430Watt
No overclock

I got 2 DIMMs of Kingston 2048MB 1333Mhz, but for some reason CPU-z shows them as 667MHz why is that?

One more question:
How I can test my system for stability (is it needed at all)?

Last question: Here you can find the output of CPU-z
Does this settings looks fine (the voltage and stuff, I dont understand in this I simply used optimized bios settings).

It only really matters what's shown in the BIOS.

To test for stability, go to the Step-by-Step Guide to Building a PC sticky. Step 10 has a bunch of benchmarking/testing software you can and should run.
